        Solntse Rossii. Khudozhestvenny illiustrirovanny zhurnal. Die Sonne Russlands - Sun of Russia - Le Soleil de Russie. 46 Einzelhefte aus dem Jahrgang 1915

      St, Petersburg 1915 - pro Heft ca. 16 Seiten. 4° (ca. 23x24 cm), Orig.-Broschuren. Sollntse Rossi war eine russische Wochenzeitschrift, die in St. Petersburg zwischen 1910-1916 von Alexander E. Kogan (1878-1949) herausgegeben wurde. In dieser kulturell und historisch breit aufgestellten Zeitung wurden u.a. Werke von Arkady Averchenko, Sasha Chorny, Basil Adikaevsky, Alexander Perfilev, Nikolai Agnivtsev und Ivan Grabowski veröffentlich. Auch von namhaften Photographen wie beispielsweise Moisei Nappelbaum, Peter Adolfovich Otsup etc. wurden deren Photographen in schönen Tiefdrucktafeln wiedergegeben. Unser Konvolut besteht aus über 40 Einzelnummern des Kriegsjahrganges 1915. Die Nummern waren vormals in einem stark gebrauchsspurigem Verlagseinband eingebunden und numerisch fortlaufend. Der Jahrgang war aber nicht komplett. Den Zeitschriften fehlt bis auf die letzte dort eingebundene Nummer, die Rückenumschläge, sind aber inhaltlich vollständig und umfassen je Nummer ca. 16 Seiten. Meist sind die Blätter gelockert und auch hin und wieder lose, am Rücken befinden sich hier und da einige Montagereste des alten Einbandes, sehr gelegentliche Einrisse, schwach gebräunt, die berühmten farbigen Vorderdeckel (von namhaften russischen Künstlern der Zeit illustriert) vorhanden. Einige Nummern ohne Vorderdeckel legen wir dazu, sie gehören aber nicht in die Zählung. - Insg. eine herausragende Sammlung dieser wichtigen russischen Zeitschrift, mit einer Fülle an Artikeln zum Kriegsgeschehen, zum Ballett, zur Bevölkerung (u.a. auch einem Artikel über russische Juden), ein Artikel über Tolstoi, weiteres zu Künstlern, Schauspielern und auch Berichte über fremde Völker. - Sollntse Rossi was a Russian weekly magazine, published in St. Petersburg between 1910-1916 by Alexander E. Kogan (1878-1949). In this culturally and historically diversified newspaper were among others Works of Arkady Averchenko, Sasha Chorny, Basil Adikaevsky, Alexander Perfilev, Nikolai Agnivtsev and Ivan Grabowski published. Also by renowned photographers such as Moisei Nappelbaum, Peter Adolfovich Otsup etc. which photographers were reproduced in beautiful gravure printing plates. Our compilation consists of 40 individual numbers of the war the vintage 1915. The numbers were previously involved in a highly gebrauchsspurigem Publishing Binding and numerically continuously. but the vintage was not complete. The magazines missing except the last there embedded number, the back covers, but are content complete and cover each number about 16 pages. Usually the leaves are loosened and now and again loosely, on the back here and there are some remnants of the old assembly book cover, very occasional tears, slightly discolored, the famous colored front cover (by renowned Russian artists of the time illustrated) available. Some numbers without front cover we attach to it, but they do not belong in the count. - Insg. an outstanding collection of this important Russian magazine, with a wealth of articles on the war events, the ballet, the population (among others also an article about Russian Jews), an article on Tolstoy, further to artists, actors and even reports of foreign nations.

        X Rays and Crystal Structure

      London: G. Bell and Sons, Ltd.,, 1915. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, double-line border to boards in blind. Four photographic plates. Spine somewhat faded and dulled, a few minor marks to cloth and light rubbing to extremities, residue of library stamps to spine, Cambridge University Chemical Laboratory library ink stamp to title page and occasional pages and plates within, later Churchill College Cambridge library stamp and deaccession slip, residue from removed library slip, pencil notes on the book and provenance to front pastedown. Sound, clean but for the library markings, a very good copy withal. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, of the first textbook on x-ray crystallography, for which its authors won the Nobel Prize. This copy has a presentation slip pasted down to the front free endpaper verso printed in red reading "Sent at the Request of the Author. York House, Portugal Street, W.C.", and the ink ownership inscription on the title page of Professor Sir William Jackson Pope KBE FRS (1870-1939), a prominent English Chemist noted for his crystallographic research using a goniometer, and his work in the field of stereochemistry. He was Fellow of the Royal Society from 1902 and Professor of Chemistry at Cambridge from 1908. During the First World War he served on the Board of Invention and Research for the Admiralty and on the Chemical Warfare committee at the Ministry of Munitions, being appointed CBE in 1918 and KBE in 1919. This copy has the library stamps of the Cambridge University Chemical Laboratory, and is a highly appropriate association copy presented "at the Request of the Author" (a seemingly more personal and deliberate manner of presentation than the rather more common "Presentation Copy" blind-stamp extant in a number of other copies. Author William Henry Bragg (1862?1942) was a mathematician and physicist who did important early work on radioactivity. He was a scholar at Trinity College Cambridge and gained a first class degree in Mathematics. He invented the x-ray spectrometer and with his son William Lawrence (1890?1971) invented x-ray crystallography, the science of using of x-ray diffraction patterns to determine the structure of molecules. This book describing their discoveries became the standard guide to this rapidly expanding and highly influential field, and the Braggs were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1915, with Bragg Jr. today remaining the youngest person to have achieved the honour. The younger Bragg went on to have an illustrious career, being appointed Cavendish professor of Physics at Cambridge in 1938 and presiding over the work of Watson and Crick during their discovery of the structure of DNA, made possible by x-ray crystallography. The Braggs' work was noted in Printing and the Mind of Man to have "virtually given the science of crystallography a new basis. Thus the fundamentally differenet qualities of two forms of carbon, graphite and diamond,a re seen to be due to differences in the arrangements of the atoms and in the distances between them. This makes it possible in the commercial laboratory to build new substances and materials based on the arrangement of atoms that will ensure certain desired qualities." (PMM)

        Board game, "You will laugh too if you KANGAROO!"

      New York:: Kangaroo Corporation; Gray Lith. Co.,. 1915.. A large laughing female kangaroo with a joey in her pouch who says "Be Happy at Home!" to another young kangaroo asking "Why such joy?" decorates the triangular box lid of this amusing bright orange and purple 1915 peg board game. The playing board itself is framed with the text, "You can't be blue if you KANGAROO.... No trouble troubles you." The unusual triangular box features three kangaroos on the top lid, with edges decorated with horse shoes and shamrocks on a purple ground. The instructions are printed on the under side of the top lid, including the offer of a $500 reward. The Kangaroo Corporation offered the prize for any correct solution to the game, which involves landing the King in Goal No. 14. "The above prize to be awarded January 15, 1916." 25 numbered holes on the board, with all but one hole for small wooden pegs. 11 pegs are lacking. The object of the game was to jump holes so that only the King remained in hole number 14, in the manner of Chinese checkers. Each side of the triangular box measures 9 1/4". The box printed by Gray Lith. Co. N.Y.;1915 copyright by the Kangaroo Corporation. The top lid with some fading, a scratch in the lower right corner, rubbed at edges, corners repaired with sticky tape.

        Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania

      Scarce History Books - Genealogical and Personal History of Western- Pennsylvania. 1,789 pages. Q. One half Morocco. New York: Lewis Historical Publishing Company, 1915. Three Volumes. First Edition. First Printing. Out of Print.Personal History of Western Pennsylvania, presents in the aggregate an amount and variety of genealogical and persona! information and portraiture unequaled by any kindred publication. No similar work concerning Western Pennsylvania has ever before been presented, and it contains a vast amount of ancestral history never before printed. The object, clearly defined and well digested, is to present in concise f(jrm the history of Western Pennsylvania Families of the Colonial Days. There are numerous voluminous histories of the State, making it unnecessary in this work to even outline its annals. What has been published, however, relates principally to civic life. The amplification necessary to complete the picture, old and nowadays, is what is supplied by these Genealogical and Personal Memoirs. In other words, while.others have written of the times, the province of this work is as a chronicle of the people who have made this magnificent region what it is. Unique in conception and treatment, this work constitutes one of the most original and permanently valuable contributions ever made to the social history of an American community. In it are arrayed in a lucid and dignified manner all the available facts regarding the ancestry, personal careers and matrimonial alliances of those who, in each succeeding generation, have been accorded leading positions in social, professional and bu.sinless life. It is not based upon, neither does it minister to, aristocratic prejudices and assumptions. On the contrary, its fundamental ideas are thoroughly American and democratic. The work everywhere conveys the lesson that distinction has been gained only by honorable public service, or by usefulness in private station, and that the development and prosperity of the region of which it treats have been dependent upon the character of its citizens, and in the stimulus which they have given to commerce, to industry, to the arts and sciences, to education and religion to all that is comprised in the highest civilization of the present day through a continual progressive doe,.Conditions: Age appropriate wear of covers, owners writings on blank front page, binding is firm, pages are clean.

        Collection of broadsides and pamphlets mainly supporting, some opposing, the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granting American women the right to vote in federal elections. Broadsides and Pamphlets from state campaigns for the 19th Amendment make up the bulk of this collection with several broadsides opposing woman's suffrage. The 19th Amendment guarantees American women the right to vote, also known as suffrage. Our collection of broadsides and pamphlets derive from the period between 1919-1920 when the 19th amendment passed the House of Representatives and the Senate and was sent to the states for ratification by a 2/3 majority.

        [Photo Album]: A German Officer in The Great War on Both the French and the Russian Fronts

      1915 and 1916. Oblong octavo measuring 13" x 9". String-tied album with decorative paper over boards containing 240 gelatin silver photographs, measuring between 2.25" x 1.75" and 4.75" x 3", most with captions in German; additionally there are a dozen or more postcards mixed in. Very good or better album with moderate wear at the edges and the spine with near fine photographs. A Bohemian German officer's album of his experiences in the First World War, beginning in February, 1915 with his training in the city of Pirna, then shifting to the Western Front, showing the devastation in and around Betheniville, Vaudricourt (Somme), and Auberive. In late 1916 he was transferred to the Russian Front in the Baltics, first to Riga, then on to Jelgava (Mitau) in Central Latvia, Tartu (Dorpat) in Estonia, and Liepaja (Libau) in Latvia. Includes striking images of artillery fire at night, devastated cities, photos from the front lines showing scenes of the trenches and no man's land, and images of town and buildings long since destroyed.

One of these photos shows the building of a bridge across Elbe by German soldiers. Another photo shows them working at a switchboard as part of the early Signal Corps.

There are a few women represented in the photos, one shows two officers entertaining dates, another is a small photo of a nurse in full uniform. A few small photos towards the end of the album show ships at sea in December 1918.A notable collection of images of the "War to End All Wars" documenting the conflict from both fronts. .

In 1905, he began both a mathematical and an observational search for a ninth planet in the Solar System based on unexplained perturbations in the orbit of Uranus. These explorations continued unsuccessfully until Lowell's death in 1916. Fourteen years later, after the Lowell Observatory renewed the search for planet X, a new planet. was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh, a young assistant at the observatory. Recognition of Lowell's role in this discovery was reflected in the presence of his initials in Pluto, the chosen name of the planet" (Hockey). - Der amerikanische Astronom Percival Lowell (1855-1916), Gründer des Lowell-Observatoriums, begann als Amateurforscher, wurde aber zu einem der bekanntesten Astronomen seiner Zeit.

His thesis that the planet Mars was the abode of intelligent life continued to excite the public mind decades after his death. Lowell's name is also forever linked with Pluto; although he did not live to see that distant planet. there is no doubt that his inspiration advanced the date of its detection by many years" (DSB). - Stempel auf Titel.

        The Home of the Blizzard. Being the Story of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, 1911-1914.

      London:: Heinemann,. 1915.. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very good. Douglas Mawson, a veteran of Ernest Shackleton's "Nimrod" expedition (1907- 09), returned to Australia and was selected to lead the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 1911-14. Mawson's tale is one of the great stories of survival of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration. Exploring with Ninnis & Mertz in 1912, Ninnis was lost down a crevasse. With him went the 6 fittest dogs & the most indispensable supplies. Mertz & Mawson improvised, feeding the dogs worn out mitts & raw-hide straps, but eventually the weakest dogs were killed to feed them all, until all the dogs were gone. The two men reserved the dog's livers as the meat easiest to chew, unaware that liver's toxins were slowly poisoning the men as they consumed it. Mertz became delirious and died. Mawson continued, the soles of his feet separating and his toes and fingers festering. Miraculously he found a depot of food, and arrived eventually at the main depot, to see the ship departing on the horizon. He wintered over with the 6 men who had remained to continue the search. On Dec. 24, 1913 their 2 year journey was finally over. 2 vols, 349 pp & 338 pp, 224 ills., 37 ills. in text, and 3 folding maps. Collated complete. The primary binding in navy buckram with the title & illustration stamped in gold, illustration in silver gilt of "Leaning on the Wind". Gilt bright, spine tips very lightly rubbed, silver gilt illustrations very slightly rubbed. Front board very slightly bowed. Top edge faintly pale blue, possibly Rosove 217.A1.b. Overall a very bright copy. Spence 774, Taurus 100, Conrad p20.

        THE RAINBOW

      1915. [a fine copy] London: Methuen & Co., (1915). Original dark blue-green cloth with spine decorated in gilt. First Edition of this novel of the Brangwen family, a book that has a remarkable history -- this being one of only 821 domestic copies that survived censorship.~THE RAINBOW was destined to provide the occasion for Lawrence's first real trouble with the problem of censorship, a difficulty which plagued him frequently afterwards. Methuen objected to parts of the book when it was being prepared for publication, and Lawrence agreed to alter or remove sentences and phrases, but he refused to delete whole paragraphs or pages. Court action was taken against THE RAINBOW about five weeks after its publication; a moving force in the prosecution was the National Purity League. The action was taken under Lord Campbell's Obscene Publications Act, which dated from 1857.[Roberts]~(The American edition, by Huebsch, faced similar difficulties -- even after the expurgation of such juicy passages as those appearing on pages 220, 300, 318, 425 and 446 of Methuen's edition.)~This first printing consisted of 2516 copies: 1250 were bound (like this) for the domestic market, 500 were designated for colonial distribution, and the remaining 766 sets of sheets were destroyed before ever being bound. Of the 1250 domestic copies, the police confiscated 245 copies, and Methuen subsequently recalled and destroyed another 184 copies -- leaving just 821 domestic copies that presumably survived.~This copy, without the four pages of ads that appear in some but not all copies, is in remarkably fine, bright condition. Roberts A7a.
